the last kingdom slot

Join Uhtred, son of Uhtred on the five reels and 50 paylines of The Last Kingdom online slot. Most of us will have seen the TV series centred around a man from Wessex, taken captive by Danes at a young age and now returned to his birthplace to serve King Alfred. The Skywind Group decided that not only people interested in period TV dramas should get to experience the adventures of Uhtred, and have therefore landed the licensing agreement to release on online slot based on the series, and thrown in a progressive jackpot for good measure. Let’s see what else we’ll uncover in an in-depth review.

In case you aren’t aware, a progressive jackpot is a central pot created by a casino game software developer – in this instance, the Skywind Group. Every spin by all players playing the game will see a percentage of that wager added to the central pot. The pot keeps growing until some lucky player comes along and wins the lot. These pots have grown to over £10 million in the past, so who knows what you might be walking away with in The Last Kingdom. The developers have done a sterling job bringing Uhtred and co to life with some superb graphics and the soundtrack from the series. The characters also stand out well on mobile, with iOS and Android both providing mobile platforms for you to spin the reels.

It might bother you that the RTP is on the lower side – 93.5%. Brethren beware! Return to player ratios are always lower in progressive titles, so don’t think that it’s unusual by any means. What is a little disappointing is that The Last Kingdom online slot it also quite volatile, meaning that there could be long periods where wins don’t happen. The maximum players can wager is £250.00 per spin, which is on the high side. However, players on a budget can ride into battle starting at £0.50 per spin.

Feature Symbols

The symbols are where the theme of The Last Kingdom really comes through. All the main characters from the show can be found landing as icons throughout the game, and all of them act as the higher value symbols. There’s the priest Beocca, the shield maiden Brida, the ferocious warrior Ragnar and King Alfred. The highest paying of the regular symbols is the fiery ring icon. There’s also five lower value icons, which are the usual playing cards 10, J, Q, K and A.

There are three symbols that you’ll want to keep an eye out for, and the first of these is the wild. This is Uhtred, and he also happens to be the highest paying of all the symbols in the game. The wild substitutes all regular icons to create winning lines, which is a handy function. The second is the Free Games icon, while the third is a shield and this is the scatter.

Bonuses and Jackpots

Let’s start with the Free Games symbol. Should this symbol land on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin then you will have triggered the Free Spins feature. When this happens you’ll be able to choose from 2 free spin options:

  • Saxons Free spins: 15 spins with a x2 multiplier
  • Danes Free Spins: 6 free spins with a x5 multiplier

The scatter symbol triggers the Shield Wall Jackpot Bonus. When this happens, you’ll be given six bonus spins. The objective during this feature is to fill up the rows with shield symbols, which when they fall, will remain locked on the reels. Filling a reel awards three additional spins – there are also multipliers awarded for landed shields – and should you fill three rows during the feature you’ll be given the MINI jackpot and cash prizes. Should you fill the entire table with shields, then the GRAND Jackpot is yours.

There are a few elements here that we weren’t too impressed with, such as the high maximum bet. The high volatility and low RTP are also quite annoying. But with the free games both in the Free Spins and the Shield Wall bonus, there is plenty of potential for frequent wins. This isn’t even taking the progressive jackpot into account, which is undoubtedly the biggest drawcard for all players. It’s time to join Uhtred for a journey in search of your winnings.
